Notes / Commercial Description:
As a brewer-owned brewery, one of the hallmark attributes of Tree House Brewing Company is continuous evolution, candid self assessment, and progressive hands on experimentation. Our Curiosity series affords us the opportunity to experiment outside the box, with small discoveries being imparted into our core beers to make them better and better over time. For Fifty Eight, we took a close look at, and experimented heavily with, our fermentation and kettle hopping processes to coax a uniquely fruity flavor profile out of a blend of our favorite American hops. The body here is very dense, but never weighs down the palate… a beautiful base to carry a complex assortment of juicy fruit gum, honeydew melon, and jackfruit flavors. Enjoy!

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
1/28/19
Served in a Tree House teku

The beer poured an opaque, pale straw yellow and was topped by a small, frothy, bright white crown that quickly fell to a clingy collar. Steaks of lacing stuck along the glass.

The aroma was really interesting. Fruity and smooth. Melon notes dominated. Honeydew came through strongest. A generic fruit salad-like quality was also apparent. Subtle peach notes as well. Citrus appeared as the beer sat. Nice juicy orange presence. Touch of dankness too.

The flavor was also solid but a bit more straightforward. Citrus dominated. Freshly squeezed orange juice came to mind. Bit of tangerine too. Subtle honeydew melon notes. Lemony in the center. Slightly tart and tangy. More tangerine and tangerine peel on the back end and in the finish. Grapefruit notes came through as well. Just the slightest hint of pithy bitterness.

The mouthfeel was impossible fluffy, creamy and smooth. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, zippy, tongue blanketing effervescence. Pillowy soft and uber plush on the palate.

Curiosity Fifty-Eight might not be the most exciting offering in the Curiosity series, but it checks all the boxes of what makes for an impressive hazy double IPA. All in all, a tasty and highly crushable take on the style.

1/26/19 the universe is indifferent (indeed), poured into tulip glass
Pours hazy, dull orange with quickly settled head and some lacing
Nose starts bready with tropical fruits, and whiff of cotton candy
Taste is delicious. Thick but drinkable. Light malt then tropical fruits, a little bitter on the finish but with some dryness. Not as fluffy as some other Tree House brews. Medium carbonation. The Tree House guys decribe jackfruit and juicy fruit, not sure what jackfruit is but I get the juicy fruit.
Overall another delicious beer from Tree House that makes most others pale by comparison.

Canned 1/28/19, thanks to rudzud
Pours a smaller fizzy head with fair retention, just a little lacing, super cloudy hazy medium to darker orange color

Nose citrus as some generic fruit, light tangerine, some honey dew melon, and general melon, little peachy stone fruit, typical creamy base flaked malt

Taste very creamy flaked oats and wheat like, soft juicy, orange cream tangerine, citrus, more melon, little cantaloupe and honey dew, little generic stone fruit, hint of fruity bubblegum, background tropical like, dry finish, light bitterness, wheat bringing a little vanilla cake

Mouth is med bod but very soft pillowy juicy, a bit lighter on the carb, alcohol hidden well

Overall nice, very soft pillowy juicy, good fruits, doesn't get spicy bitter rindy

A - Opaque medium gold color with thick white lacing.

S - Juicy tropical fruit aroma. Overall is a little subdued but very nicely defined (for lack of a better description).

T - Soft tropical fruit and fruit rind with a slight bit of peppery fruit rind. Very juicy and finishes balanced.

M - Medium body, dry finish and coats the mouth with juicy tropical fruit.

O - Highly recommended.

Cloudy yellow pour with a foamy white head and sticky lacing. The smell is kind of on the mild side, sweet orange is all I’m really getting. The taste is subtle too, creamy Hop flavors with little bitterness. The feel is smooth and soft. Overall a very nice brew.

Smells like ripe fruit, tingles on the tongue, goes down easy. Pours yellow-orange with a foamy white head. Satisfyingly sweet finish, a definite fruit juice feel. And, a really awesome label. Nothing out of the ordinary for Tree House, but an exceptional, essentially perfect DIPA.
